The graduate program in Environmental Science fosters an understanding of interrelationships between disciplines in addition to requiring depth of study in specialized areas. It emphasizes the need to understand the social context and environmental consequences of using science and technology to serve human needs. We require all students to take two core courses: Environmental Problem Solving (ENV 702 ), and Environmental Law and Policy Seminar (ENV 703 ). Other course work in support of a student's specialization generally includes courses from several departments and student research often crosses disciplinary lines.
